Spring Forward

by David Shultz

The air is almost a liquid now 
Un-stirred sugar in tea 
The bells off in the distance allow 
Endless periphery 
Not from the house of God 
Not ungodly 
Please let the low and heavy bells 
Ring right in to me 

Some days are all in the evening 
They burn like alcohol 
You're there so beautifully breathing 
Exhausted from it all 
But I like to be with you 
Anyway 
You want 
It's your call 
Some days you dance the Spring Forward 
Some days the March Crawl 

The river bank has been washed away 
Unburdened roots from the dust 
The wind and water don't care anyway 
Endlessly oblivious 
Not from the hand of God 
Not godless 
Please let the wind and water flow 
Right in to us 

Some days are all in the evening 
They burn like alcohol 
You're there so beautifully breathing 
Exhausted from it all 
But I like to be with you 
Anyway 
You want 
It's your call 
Some days you dance the Spring Forward 
Some days the March Crawl 

Some days are all in the evening
